About PFWC

Pregnancy and Family Wellness Centre was founded in 2020 by Dr Aimee Owens, a Chiropractor who wanted to create a space where women and their families could grow through holistic health care. 

At Pregnancy and Family Wellness Centre we provide a variety of holistic and natural health services to empower families throughout their health and wellness journey. We truly believe that holistic healthcare is a vital part of pregnancy care and helps to create better outcomes for the entire family unit - when a mother is truly cared for, she can better care for those around her.

Our mission at Pregnancy and Family Wellness Centre is to empower women through their pregnancy with hands on care and knowledge. We strive to help women to grow happy, healthy families, and to truly honour and care for themselves. Our team provides professional and knowledgeable health care to work with and educate everyone who enters our space.


We are determined to inspire change through providing holistic healthcare options for families.

Aimee grew up with a love of holistic healthcare and was lucky to have seen the many benefits that Chiropractic care brought to herself and to her family through the many stages of life.

She is very passionate about pregnancy Chiropractic as well as Chiropractic care for children and families. Aimee loves watching families grow and providing them with holistic healthcare to keep them feeling happy and healthy. When she's not in the clinic you'll probably find her painting (or trying really hard to), having brunch and spending time with her family.

Michelle Rodgers
Remedial Massage Therapist

Michelle created Knots Begone Remedial massage in 2017 so she could work around her teenage children and over the years it has transformed into a holistic style massage. Michelle became interested in the human body when she was a personal trainer & competitive powerlifter. Knowing what the human body was capable of, she also knew the importance of respecting & treating our bodies well so that we can continue to enjoy what life offers us. She is very passionate about supporting women & their families in their health, so they can live their best lives.

Michelle's treatments are very holistic using many modalities in her remedial or relaxation treatments. Michelle has trained in a number of different techniques over the years and during a treatment with her, she may utilise these techniques including (but not limited to): hot stones, crystal stones, cupping, dry needling and reiki.

Michelle's hands have done everything from lifting for the Australian Powerlifting Team, to lovingly nurturing precious babies.

She would love to help soothe your weary muscles and lighten your heaviness.

Stephanie Simmons
Pre & Post Natal Exercise Specialist
Infant Massag
e Instructor
Certified Doula

Stephanie is a Pregnancy & Birth Practitioner and is the founder of Mind Body Baby. Stephanie attended the University of Oklahoma as an NCAA student-athlete & completed her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2009. After graduating, Stephanie enrolled in a Sports Psychology master’s degree program, however she soon realised that her true passion was in the field of pregnancy & childbirth.


Stephanie’s journey in birth work began after obtaining her doula certification through Commonsense Childbirth School of Midwifery & she was mentored by renowned midwife Jennie Joseph. While living in Florida and Oklahoma, Stephanie collaborated with local midwives in birthing centres providing assistance in clinic appointments & during labour and childbirth. Stephanie’s experience soon led to her discovery about the lack of knowledge & education among practitioners & patients about exercise during pregnancy. As a former elite athlete, Stephanie understood the positive impact that exercise could have on her pregnant and postnatal clients & decided to become a certified Pre & Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist. She opened her own exercise studio & provided education to other birth practitioners in her community.

Since returning to her hometown here in Melbourne, Stephanie has
continued furthering her studies in Pregnancy and Infant Massage Therapy.
Stephanie believes that a multidisciplinary approach to prenatal care is key & is excited about sharing her knowledge and experience with her clients so that they can achieve a positive and empowering pregnancy & childbirth experience.

Jenelle Tartaro 
Remedial Massage Therapist, Reiki, Tarot Card Readings, Strategic Psychotherapy and Clinical Hynposis

Jenelle is the founder of Infinite Serenity: Holistic Health and Wellbeing.

She has always had an interest in how the physical, mental, emotional & spiritual aspects of an individual correlate & intertwine, to impact an individual’s overall health and wellbeing.

Jenelle has always been drawn to the complexities of human science as she completed her Bachelor of Social Science (Criminal Justice) degree in 2008. The course brought about a passion in psychology, counselling, & victimology (in particular). Jenelle has also completed her Diploma in Strategic Psychotherapy and Clinical Hypnosis.

Jenelle has felt a passion for alternative therapies since she completed her Reiki 1 workshop back in 2009 and has been a Reiki Master since 2010. She has always had intuitive gifts ever since she was a child; and she uses those gifts during her Reiki and Angel/Tarot card readings to help validate what people already know and feel within themselves, about people and situations within their lives. Jenelle's passion for Massage Therapy had been simmering under the surface since her teenage years and she remembers family members telling her she has 'Magic hands', as a result she completed her Certificate IV in Massage Therapy in 2014, & continued to complete her Diploma in Remedial Massage in 2018 to add to her repertoire of skills.


Jenelle feels she is accomplishing her life’s purpose when people leave her room after treatment feeling a reduction in emotional/physical pain, they’re relaxed, and feeling calm and peaceful.
